I don't normally combine challenges, but these two challenges went together so beautifully I just couldn't resist. Over at The Shabby Tea Room, the Week #5 challenge is It's Hip To Be Square, and they have this lovely baby quilt as their inspiration photo. Over at Our Creative Corner Weekly Sketch Challenge, they have this wonderfully square-filled sketch for OCCSC #11. A match made in heaven, I think!
My sweet little baby image is from Cornish Heritage Farms' Baby Dear stamp set, along with the "Down Lullaby Lane" sentiment from their Vintage Baby Expressions set. I colored the image with Copics to match my patterned papers, which are from GCD Studios Melody Ross Homespun Chic collection (some fabulous blog candy I received from the lovely Julie of Julie's Open Window). I tied up this little vignette with some Martha Stewart ribbon, and added some glittered chipboard doves, also from the Melody Ross collection. A little Cuttlebug embossing and zigzag stitching is going on behind the scenes.
Hope you are all having a beautiful weekend. I'm going to go out and enjoy the sunny Carolina blue skies. :)
